To ensure our children have the material basics, please join the discussion at Made Open Tasmania. A forum to share ideas & knowledge.
In our region:
- More than 25% of our children live in low income families (much higher in some areas). (ABS, 2011)
- Housing affordability an issue (only 5% of housing suitable for single parent on income support). (Anglicare housing affordability report 2013)

“Increasing cost of living: food, housing, heating, transport."
"Lots of families do not have basic necessities."
“Many parents lack life skills to cope or manage household."
By 2035 every child will have:
- Access to things to lead a ‘normal’ life – suitable housing, heating, clothing, food, clean water, materials to participate in education
- Access to transport
- Access to healthy food
- A healthy hygienic environment and good life skills.
